Almay Would Like You to Share Your Special Makeup Moments with Mom

Have you entered the Makeup Moments with Mom contest yet with Almay? All you have to do is share your special makeup moments you had with your mom on the Almay Facebook page and could be the winner of a trip to NYC with a makeover for two! What a special treat to share with your mom.

I love this video of Kate Hudson with her mom, the beautiful Goldie Hawn. They have such an amazing relationship. You can just tell that it is full of respect and admiration of each other.

I do not have specific make-up moments with my mom. I remember watching her apply her make-up. Giving herself eyebrows since she has always said hers are very light in color and are not even visible. I also remember her putting on her mascara and then using a large needle to separate her eyelashes. She still uses a needle to separate her lashes, and I do as well.

It is not the make-up moments I remember quite so well with my mom, but her hair coloring moments. My mom used to color her own hair and I remember two different moments that she turned her hair green. This was in the day when it was not popular to have different colored hair! I remember one moment vividly since she was rather freaked out about it. I was in bed and my bedroom happened to be across the hall from the bathroom. The light was on in the bathroom so I could see her standing there looking in the mirror exclaiming “my hair is green”. Grant it I was half asleep, but I seem to recall her saying we had to go with her to the store to buy more hair color. She had to go to work the next morning.

  1. I would totally freak out if my hair was green!

  2. Love it! I have such great memories with my Mom. I used to love to watch her get ready & do her hair each morning. Thanks for sharing your story!

  3. When I think of skipping my makeup in the morning, I can hear my mom’s voice saying, “ALWAYS wear lipstick.”

    • I wonder if my mom said that at once too. I never wear make-up when I am just hanging out at home, but then I will have to run out of the house and it occurs to me I have no make-up on. I put on lipstick!

  4. Jenna Wood says:

    I saw this a week back and entered my mom and I. I love Almay, their cosmetics are great for sensitive skin!

  5. My mother permed my hair once. ONCE.
    I looked like a long haired poodle.
    I miss her

  6. I just remember my mom used the same perfume all of her life, and she used it sparingly. The only time she wore make-up was on Sundays, just a bit of blush and mascara.

  7. I love the closeness of these two. It’s like my relationship with my mom and my daughter!

  8. My mom and I are very close now. And it means the world to me.
